Trump's big win: Less regulation, more infrastructure?
from Engineering News-Record
Washington and the nation saw red — more than expected — across the electoral map with Republican Donald Trump's Nov. 8 squeaker win of the presidency over Democrat Hillary Clinton in a tight race to the end, and with the GOP managing to keep control of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. As the construction industry digests Trump's surprising victory, they expect the new administration's regulatory policy to tilt strongly toward business interests' point of view. In particular, industry officials foresee a pullback on environmental and workplace-related rules.
Another construction industry focus will be Trump's proposals for a sizable increase in infrastructure investment. Just how large an increase — and the type of projects the plan will include — are unclear, however.
